Our take

In this ingenious stop-motion short, humble beans come alive, populating their own planet made from everyday household objects. As fish tins become race cars and candy boxes turn into skyscrapers, this delightfully bean-centric microcosm doubles as a whimsical parody of space-obsessed 1970s culture.
